General Motors is introducing a Cadillac Deville capable of deflecting bullets on the fly. Lincoln has a new Town Car that can save drivers from an AK-47 rifle attack or even a hand grenade. BMW likewise recently unveiled an armored car — which can be hermetically sealed in the event of a gas attack. NPR's Michele Norris talks with Csaba Csere, editor-in-chief of Car and Driver, about new cars for a new world.
